Shipping & Delivery

Shipping & Delivery »

We do our best to ship orders as fast as possible and most orders are shipped within 1-2 days from the time we receive them. However, wet pulp (ready-to-use) is custom beaten in our Hollander beaters and may take up to a week to make, depending on the number of beaten pulp orders we receive.

All orders are shipped via UPS or FedEx from Brooklyn, New York. You will receive an email with your order’s tracking number on the day your order is shipped. Shipping takes 1-5 business days to most destinations within the US. Customers may also choose 2-day service for quicker delivery. You will be offered a choice of both services during checkout. Please be aware that Saturdays and Sundays are not considered to be business days. For example, if you choose 2-day service and your package is shipped on Thursday, then you will receive it on Monday.

Orders to Canada are shipped by UPS and take 3-7 days to most destinations. Canadian customers may choose UPS 2-Day for a quicker delivery. 

Orders to other foreign countries are generally sent via air -UPS or FedEx International.

International orders: You must call (718) 599-7857 or email to receive a custom quote for shipping outside the US. (except for Canada)

Please note that all foreign customers are responsible for any customs fees, taxes or duties.

Refunds »

We will issue refunds for materials within 45 days of purchase; however there is a 15% restocking fee, and the customer pays the return shipping. We do not reimburse shipping costs. No returns are allowed for beaten (wet) pulp, paper, polyester felt alternative which is custom cut, or equipment.

Workshop Refund Policy »

If we must cancel a workshop due to low enrollment, we will issue a full refund. If you must cancel a workshop for any reason, and we can fill your space with someone on the waiting list, then we will issue a refund less a $25 nonrefundable registration fee for the short workshops and  $100 for papermaking-in-depth. If we are unable to fill your space, then we cannot issue a refund.

Orders are packed with great care.  However we are not responsible for damages in transit.  Any visible damage should be noted with the carrier when the package is signed for, and keep all boxes and packing material for inspection.
